The result is this opulent, juicy Chianti Classico, which is awash with fruity overtones of amarena cherries and blackberries, as well as spicy notes of licorice and coffee. It also boasts a well-balanced, pleasant structure on the palate.
Color: Intense ruby red with garnet reflections.
Nose: Persistent aromas of ripe, red berries and plums.
Palate: Well-balanced, with forward fruit, smooth tannins and a lengthy finish.
Grape Varieties: 100% Sangiovese.
Production Area: This limited production wine is sourced from Rocca delle Macie’s single Tenuta Sant’Alfonso vineyard, situated in an area that comprises portions of two bordering communes: Castellina (Chianti Classico) and Poggibonsi (Chianti).
Vinification: After careful selection, grapes are gently pressed and the must undergoes traditional vinification. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for at least 12 months and further refined in the bottle for a year prior to release.
